    Re: Adding stock navigation to CTS Base.

    Anyone had there non nav dic to sell? I had went other way and got rid of stock nav and using aftermarket system so I would like to bring back to life my dic and engine info controls you know? If anyone can help with the that would be great. I also have a old factory nav but it needs a button soldered back on as right side of the controls don't work.

    Re: Adding stock navigation to CTS Base.

    Hi guys. I have an 06 cts sport wheel package with 6 cd changer, Bose system, and xm radio. I was wondering if I get a navigation system from an 05 cts. Would it be a direct plug and play? Thanks

    It would work with some modding

    Re: Adding stock navigation to CTS Base.

    I just removed the old one. Plugged in the wires for the navigation and also ran the GPS antenna right under the dash. It powers on but then says "theft lock activated". I'll go to GM in a few days. Would they give me any grief about unlocking the navi unit? Also what kind of mods are we talking and what wont work?

    Thanks for the reply

    So this morningI started my car and the theft locked activate screen is gone and the unit appears to be working properly. But I'm not getting any sound from the radio stations the preset is just blinking yellow. And I can't load any CDs. Help please

    You gotta get it programmed. The nav isn't properly recognized by the car. You should be good after that.

    Re: Adding stock navigation to CTS Base.

    Ok i just had it unlocked by gm and you were right it works fine. Thanks.

    But I'm having issues with the cd changer. When I start the car 5 of the 6 cd slots are grey and one is colored. I pressed and held load the system beeps twice but I can't load anything. The slot is blocked. After I try this all 6 slots show grey on the screen. When I press eject it just beeps once. Lol I need more help thanks. Im so eager to have this working properly

    Also when I put an audio cd in the top dvd slot it doesn't work either. The cd goes it and I hear it spinning and stopping and continuously doing that. The tech that unlocked my navigation doesn't normally do the work, I wonder if it possible in loaded the wrong firmware. He said he was going to install a fresh firmware and change the vin from there.

    You most likely need your unit taken apart and lubed then your discs will be working properly.
    As for the DVD slot, trying cleaning it first then try putting an actual DVD in it to see if it plays the movie. If it does then you're good to go. If not, you have a problem sir.

    Re: Adding stock navigation to CTS Base.

    Thanks a lot for the reply. I decided to take the unit out. I took the cd changer apart and found tray 1 was off track. I pushed it back into place and the cd changer now works perfect. However I still do not get anything on the DVD. The DVD gets sucked in but nothing shows up. I here the disc spinning and stopping over and over.

    Also would Navteq 6.7 map cd work on the unit? Its for infinity and nissan

    Thanks
